Cockroaches 101- Everything You Need To Know About These Nasty Pests

3639234792 33b5e6fe46 Cockroaches 101  Everything You Need To Know About These Nasty Pests

Cockroaches are typically seen as unwanted pests, although this isn’t entirely true. The vast majority of cockroaches we see on a daily basis do in fact invade our homes, cause a nuisance, and definitely are pests. However, certain varieties of cockroaches are essential to the environment and will actually help to recycle organic materials which are decaying or dying. With that being said, the cockroaches that we consider as pests are known to carry various diseases and can emit some pretty disgusting odors.

Some cockroaches can measure over 2 inches in length and are most often found in environments where waste food is present. This will typically be kitchens and restaurants. Cockroaches will have six legs and two antennae and certain species even have wings, thus making them even more of a nuisance, although it must be said that winged cockroaches aren’t particularly great at flying. Most cockroaches will make chirping noises of some sorts, although there are certain species which can get extremely vocal.

Facts About Cockroaches

  • There are a wide variety of ways in which cockroaches may enter your home. Most typically this will be through cracks or crevices in the walls, floors or ceilings. They can also enter your home through the sewage and drainage systems and also the pipes. Cockroaches have been known to be brought in from outside on your person or in shopping bags, etc.
  • Cockroaches will be particularly attracted to the home environment, as they will find warmth, food and water, and a place to nest. In fact, this is the ideal place for them to start breeding.
  • You should be aware that cockroaches breed at an extremely fast rate, and if you happen to spot just one cockroach there is likely to be plenty more nearby.
  • An interesting fact is that cockroaches are usually nocturnal creatures. Unfortunately, if you happen to spot a cockroach during the day this may a sign that you have an extremely severe infestation of these pests. The likelihood is that their “resting place” has been severely overcrowded and they have simply been forced out into the open before nightfall.
  • As many of you may be aware, cockroaches can aggravate asthma and other types of allergies. Cockroaches will shed their skins, they leave droppings behind, and of course many die on a daily basis. Unfortunately, if you are especially prone to allergies or if you have young children in your home this can be very dangerous.
  • Cockroaches are fantastic at hiding and you may even have a possible infestation without even knowing it because you haven’t actually seen a cockroach with your own eyes. Even if you purchase insecticides or other chemicals to rid yourself of a potential cockroach problem, you should know that their eggs are actually protected from these. So, even if you happen to kill a number of live cockroaches you will have done little to harm their eggs and a future onslaught of cockroaches.

This is typically why many people turn to professional services in order to rid their homes of cockroaches. You will need a certain amount of knowledge about cockroaches and various, specialized materials and equipment.

The Different Species of Cockroaches Living in Arizona

Most of the World’s cockroaches live in far away areas like the tropics. Despite having the majority of cockroaches living in these far away areas, Mesa, AZ is still home to three different cockroach species. If you’ve ever experienced them in your home, then you know they can be a very irritating, hard to control pest. The three species of Arizona cockroaches are:

American Cockroach

These cockroaches are a brownish red and can measure up to two inches long. These buggers are larger and more homely in appearance when compared to the other species of Arizona cockroaches. Despite their more menacing appearance, they are not as much of a nuisance.

American cockroaches just vacation in your home for a short time. They stop by to grab a quick bite to eat. They then leave to live and mate somewhere else.

American cockroaches love hot, humid areas. They live in sewers, basements, storage rooms and garbage areas. These cockroaches can go three months with no food and a full month with no water.

German Cockroach

The German cockroach is infamous! They are the most-frequent home invaders. When they invade, they set up house. They live, eat and mate under the same roof with you. They love bathrooms and kitchens because of their easy access to water and their favorite foods.

German cockroaches will eat just about anything. They are light brown in color, and are much smaller then the American cockroach, measuring only about ½ of an inch to ¾ of an inch long. These tiny pests have masses of children with one female laying well over 2,000 eggs in a calendar year. That makes for a lot of possible home invaders!

Turkestan cockroaches are smaller and a little darker than the American roach. They prefer to live outside rather than in your homes and sewers. You will find then in leaf piles, flower beds, under rocks and in sprinkler control or water meter boxes.

These roaches are not as much of a health risk compared to American or German cockroaches and have one major trait most of us find annoying. They fly!

Controlling Mesa Roaches

The city of Mesa, AZ will coat the underneath of its 8,000 manholes with a latex based insecticide every couple of years. This insecticide helps tremendously in keeping the roach populations under control. On the other hand, Mesa City is only in charge of the community’s sewers. It is the citizens of Mesa who are responsible for keeping roaches out of their homes and properties.

If you are a Mesa resident, and are having cockroach problems, contact a local exterminator today!
